In 2012 we came up with the idea of Socktober and little did we know what a huge success it would be! The idea was to ask celebrities, footballers and other sports personalities to donate signed socks to us, which we would then auction throughout the month of Socktober.
The response was amazing and we had socks from the likes of Dame Kelly Holmes, Ricky Hatton, Amy Macdonald and even two members of One Direction! Footballers John Terry, Darren Bent, Francis Lee also sent us socks as well as our ambassadors Grant McCann and Aaron Mclean.
We are repeating the campaign in 2014 and need your help to get as many famous people to donate socks as possible, we would love to beat 2012’s total of £1,500 raised.
Already we have socks from tennis star Sara Errani and footballer Marvin Sordell, plus we like to throw a few extra special items into the auctions along the way as well. Last time we had cricket bats signed by Australian test teams and a snooker cue, signed by legends of the game.
If you have any contacts with celebrities or football clubs, please get in touch for more details.
